"the kudlow report" begins right now. >>> first up tonight, president obama will travel to boston thursday for an interfaith service with bombing victims. more than 24 hours after two bombs ripped through marathon crowds killing three, wounding 170 others, investigators are still no closer to answers. late this afternoon, the fbi said no claims of responsibility have been received, and the search for suspects is wide open. deborah boxdy joins us now from boston with all of the latest. good evening, deborah. >> reporter: good evening, larry. i'm live here along boylston street in the heart of boston, about four blocks or so away from the marathon's finish line, where those two bombs exploded just one day ago. securi

by a saggy economy, energy blackouts, and frustration from his labor union base. fewer than 900,000 signatures were needed to launch the recall. it took only 65 signatures and $3,500 to get on the ballot. aside from the two candidates a cast of more than 100 characters ended up on the ballot from the famous arnold schwarzenegger arianna huffington, and larry flynt, to the onabsurd. a primary system that now rewards the top two vote getters regardless of party, and taking responsibility for drawing district boundaries away from lawmakers and giving it to state -- senator's panel. joining me now is joe garofoli. welcome back into "the war room." >> i object to calling gary coleman absurd. >> michael: yeah you could have said what are you walking about? how did this turn into this major recall. >> there was a very low turnout for the previous election very nasty where gray davis was up for reelection so the bar was low to have a recall. you had the energy crisis people thought davis bungled it he passed a vehicle license fee to raise money, because the economy w
administration seems to be trying to inflict the most pain on the economy to force republicans to cave in and negotiate a tax increase. so instead you have furloughs of hundreds of air traffic controllers across the country, and you've got major headache for travelers because you have delays at major airports, and miami and dallas and los angeles, two, three hours, and people are missing connects. so, it's become quite a crisis with respect to travel. neil: now, obviously some republicans are getting concerned bus a couple of them ordered like a 30-day freeze on firing or layoffs. but it really isn't the republican's fault? >> look, first of all, tim carney put out a statement saying this is all because the republicans won't negotiate on the sequester. remember, this is $50 billion out of that $3.8 trillion budget. so the -- >> neil: they all agreed to it. >> they all agreed. >> neil: democrats and republicans, the president the prerogative to cut. one of the points the president rejected that and let this cut goes, but agency heads have wide discretion of their own. >> they do. >> nei
, with difficulty in keeping together the chavez coalition in resolving the deep problems of the economy in light of a devaluation in resolving the atrocious situation of crime and violence in the country. how he will keep those very factions of the party together and at the same time tackle these very deep seated problems is really a big question. i think it leaves open the possibility for a great deal more instability. >> suarez: it sounds like it's going to be difficult to run venezuela, whoever takes the loath of president. 30-plus percent inflation, high crimes. those facts. >> 20% last year. it's picked up a little in the last few months but or significantly in the last few months. i think that was part of the problem for maduro. i think there are serious challenges ahead. we don't want to exaggerate them too much. for 14 years, the business press has been saying that the venezuelan economy is going to collapse. it never did. it won't either. they always say it's unsus sanable. that's what we had in 2006 when you have an $8 trillion housing bubble and anybody who is looking at it which did

to the economy championed by republicans. call it an obsession with the deficit or demand for austerity that's been coming from all quarters of the republican party since 2008. >> we can't continue to spend money we don't have. >> we can't just keep spending money we don't have. >> it's time to cut spending. >> unfortunately, the facts do not support their thesis. there is now a chorus of commentators, businessowners and corporate titans, who all accept that taking chunks out of an already melancholic economy will do nothing but sustain the misery. an individual who runs the world's largest bond fund said this in an interview. "the uk and almost all of europe have erred in terms of believing austerity, fiscal austerity in the short term is the way to produce real growth. it is not. you've got to spend money." yet, despite this expert opinion, the republican party led by chairman reince priebus launched a twitter campaign yesterday attempting to blame the president for a policy that they, themselves, absolutely adore. it was pegged to the increasing impact of sequestration on domestic air tra
said, joe. she marked a total sea change in britain's relationship with the market economy before she came into power and anything that was considered important in the post-war british era was controlled by the state. nobody would do that today. she had a very permanent difference in the way britain see the mark of the economy and we are now a country which is the product of margaret thatcher's economic vision. >> steve rattner, i have been amused by commentary coming out of great britain one after another after another kr criticizing margaret thatcher on how she took on the unions and there is that line it had to be done. you were a "the new york times" reporter there. you have said the margaret thatcher is why great britain is great britain today and not italy or spain or greece. >> look. i agree. to me, it seems very clear that when she did was to save great britain from economic irrelevance and i think what may explain a little bit of the difference between the british view and the american view is that what she did was radical by british standards because britain had moved so clo
are the economy and unemployment, we don't do anything about those because the republicans would filibuster the hell out of any stimulus bill. on the other hand, tricia's point they know the nra will come to get them. they think in the general election 4% of the people care most about this issue, even though 91% of the country disagrees with us, we might not pay a political price for it whereas we know the lobby--the gun lobby will make us pay a price for it. isn't that what is wrong with our structurally with the current democracy. >> of course that's what is wrong with it. weakening that lobby is a very important part of it. but also changing the rules of the senate is a part of it that has to meet that weakening halfway. and when you have these senators who are afraid to vote for something because of the grade they're going to get. max baucus when he said why he didn't vote for it, one word, montana. the nra and the crazy support of max baucus. i'm not going to say it's crazy to support max baucus because they got what they wanted but they're so supportive with money you understand why t

immigration can affect the u.s. economy. a hearing on friday. then on monday a second hearing. after that we have to see how the process unfolds. especially republicans on the judiciary committee are calling for more than the currently scheduled hearings. probably sometime in early may we will move to the markup process which is where the senators on the judiciary committee can begin offering amendments and releasing how they want to continue to shape the bill. we hope it gets passed out of committee and go to the senate floor. host: rebekah kaplan of the national journal. wilmington, north carolina, kathleen is on our democrat line. is roberta our guest aplan.rebecca caller: my biggest fear is that our country is in a state of fear. thing wehe worst could ever have as americans. we have based our country from the beginning of a great work ethic. there are so many things we could do instead of being frightened every time something happens. domestically, foreman, and immigration. we have a statue of liberty that does welcome everybody. i believe that we should give some amnesty, because of am
